Science Explorers is an innovative, hands-on science company dedicated to providing an opportunity for children ages 4-11 to become engaged in the wonders of science. At Whitman, Science Explorers helps make science cool and exciting through our interactive, hands-on format. Ever dissect a shark? What about a squid? Have you ever mixed together two liquids to create a solid? Made glowing slime? Examined a real heart? Built and launched your own rocket? Lifted a person using nothing but air? These are just a few of the things our scholars get to experience here at Walt Whitman. Science Explorers was founded in 1999 by Jennifer Moorehead with a mission to make science fun. Whitman has been able to enjoy this amazing experience through a generous grant from Ametek!
